Winter White

Hey Lovelies,
I'm sure you've guessed, I'm not a huge fan of wearing white. For one main reason, I spill everything on myself, and so effectively If I wore white my outfit would be ruined within a number of minutes! When I was travelling to Birmingham I wanted something comfy and casual, as I was up at 4am! In the end I decided on this outfit. 
The dress itself is really girly, but I wanted to mix it up a bit so added my all time favorite chunky knitted cardigan. I don't know about you, but when I travel I get freezing, and this cardigan is extremely warm and snug, perfect for early morning. I kept the rest of the outfit as simply as possible, with just pairing it with black tights and pumps, easy to going through Airport security! I've learnt my lesson many a time, with mad fancy buckle boots, that take yonks to yank off!
Cardigan:River Island, Dress:Penney's/Primark, Bag:Fran&Jane

I added this gorgeous beige bag to bring out the beige/golden tones of the fur collar. It's a hard cardigan to match, or to even compliment so I was happy I had these easy back to wear. Double points for it having a long chain, so you can wear across the body, another plus for traveling! I don't know about you, but I find traveling stressful, so to have your hands free, is a must for me!

Boots "Goodbye Dry Ends" Shampoo&Conditioner Review

Boots:"Goodbye Dry Ends" Shampoo&Conditioner

Hey Beauties,
Normally, for haircare, I'm very particular. I'm a little bit obsessed with my hair, and always wants products that I know and trust to nourish my hair, and leave it conditioned and soft. With February being a very busy month for me, I decided to test a shampoo on the lower end of the spectrum. While browsing Boots, I wandered up and down the aisle a number of times, debating which one to go for. From being a visual merchandiser I know the more expensive products are placed at eye level, so conscious of that I look on the bottom shelf to see a rather interesting sign. "2 for €2.90" surely that couldn't be true? Modeled on the Herbal Essence bottle, I thought, surely it can't be as good as it looks. For a 400ml bottle this price seemed definitely too good to be true?...

My hair is fine, but I've got a lot of it, so I'm always conscious of what products I use in my hair. This Shampoo doesn't contain any silicone which is good, as my hair can get quite greasy easily enough. The scent is delicious! It's really summery and fruity and definitely chirps your mood in the morning. It doesn't leave as strong as scent as I would like but, it definitely lingers. I was so excited to use it this product, and I really wasn't disappointed. I washed my hair twice with the shampoo, and then left the conditioner in for about two minutes. After blow drying my hair (without any oil) I was shocked at how soft my hair actually was, and it wasn't weighed down by either product at all. It was a great product, for an unbelievable price. I will definitely be buying it again!

1 Year Anniversary

Time flies when you're having fun right? I can't believe it was a year ago on that I started this Blog. It seems like so long ago, that I made up my mind, and decided to write a Blog. I never in a million years dreamed how much it would actually change my life. I was stuck in a little bit of a rut, not really certain on what direction I wanted to take. I had been reading Blogs for a little over two years, so one night,I finally decided to bite the bullet. I grabbed my little netbook and foreverfabulousinbows was born. I wanted a creative outlet for my thoughts. I had so many idea's floating around my head that I just needed to jot down. I love fashion, but being a plus size girl I always felt a little left out, but wanted to share my thoughts and experiences, with like minded people. Stemming from that, my Blog has grown so much and I've ventured out into beauty, another huge passion of mine as well as my day to day ramblings of my life.
Blogging has really changed my life, a cliche as it sounds. I've always been outgoing but always a little reserved. Scared of the unknown, shall we say? Now I'm a person who says "yes" to new exciting/scary opportunities, that before would of never in a million years thought of doing. I've made great friends, and met absolutely amazing people, both here in Ireland and the UK. Before I wasn't lacking in self confidence, but I certainly wasn't overly confident either. I felt I wasn't pushing myself, I felt I was muddling along. Things could be more different now. I'm the busiest I've ever been. I rarely have a night off, but I love it. I'm not going to lie it's hard work. If I'm not in my full time job, I'm blogging, if I'm not blogging I'm at my Visual Merchandising course or meeting up with friends.I wouldn't change it for the world though.

The opportunities I've had have been amazing, never did I think anyone would read this little blog. I honestly have been overwhelmed with the support and encouragement not only my family have given me, but also my lovely friends. They're always supporting me and sometimes I don't thank them enough :) People who follow my Blog, thank you! It makes me so happy, to see new faces pop up on my sidebar. For me it's not how many followers I have, but it's always nice knowing you're not just rambling to yourself :) I love interacting with all you lovely girls, and can't thank you enough for supporting this Blog, leaving such nice and wonderful comments, and words of encouragement when I've needed it.Okay so I don't want to ramble too much, but I really want to say is THANK YOU. From starting this Blog I now know what career I want to pursue, what I want from life. It's really the most positive thing I could of ever done.If we haven't already spoken please Tweet/Facebook/Comment me, I always love getting to you know all, after all if it wasn't for you guys, I'd still be chatting to myself on here <3 

To everyone,who reads, follows & comments on here,  honestly thank you! It means more than you think.
